Abington provides a great get-a-way for folks interested in nature and the arts. The Holiday Inn Express is located right on Rt. 58 and Danny, the night manager has many helpful suggestions. Head east on Rt. 58 to the town of Damascus with its bike rentals for the Virginia Creeper trail which meanders along a rocky stream. Just east of Damascus the Apalachian Trail is easily accessed from the Virginia Creeper trail. Continuing along Rt. 58 east another 35 miles  brings you to Grayson State Park. This park is gorgeous with wild ponies, waterfalls, and trails to the summit at 5089 feet.  Care for less strenuous activities? A vineyard with tastings is located between Damascus and Abington. Barter Theater provides excellent entertainment in downtown Abington every night except for Mondays. Antique shops abound, some of them with period antiques. Abington has plenty of restaurants, from truly gourmet to fast-food establishments.
